Lover lover let's pretend

We're born as innocents

Cast into the world

With apple eyes

To wish wish dangerous

My dear delirious

To try and leave

The rest of us behind

Shot full of diamonds

And a million years

The disappointed disappear

Like they were never here

Kiss kiss all of this

The hiss that we had missed

And understand what can't be understood

Sear those thoughts of me

Alone and unhappy

I never liked me anyway

If by chance

Or circumstance

We should fail

Don't be so sad

Shot full of diamonds

And a million years

The disappointed disappear

Like they were never here

In a dream

We are connected

Siamese twins

At the wrist

And then I knew we'd been forsaken

Expelled from paradise

I can't believe them

When they say that it's alright

Words can't define what I feel inside

Who needs them?

Caught with this virus of my mind

I give in to my disease, of my needs

To my disease, of my needs

She really loves to break

Her dad says its OK

She really loves to break

And give it all away

Her ma says she's afraid

What more can she fake

She really needs to break

And give herself away

She gave it all away

She gave it all away

She gave it all away

We really love the USA

Quiet

I am sleeping

In here

We need a little hope

For years

I've been sleeping

Helpless

Couldn't tell a soul

Be ashamed

Of the mess you've made

My eyes never forget, you see

Behind me

Silent

Metal mercies

Castrate

Boys to the bone

Jesus

Are you listening?

Up there

To anyone at all

We are the fossils

The relics of our time

We mutilate the meanings

So they're easy to deny

Be ashamed

Of the mess you've made

My eyes never forget, you see

Behind me

Quiet

I am sleeping

Quiet

I am sleeping

Quiet

I don't trust you

I can't hear you

Be ashamed

Of the mess you've made

My eyes never forget, you see

Behind me

Behind me

The grace of falling snow

Cover up everything you know

Come save me from the awful sound

Of nothing

Today is the greatest

Day I've ever known

Can't live for tomorrow,

Tomorrow's much too long

I'll burn my eyes out

Before I get out

I wanted more

Than life could ever grant me

Bored by the chore

Of saving face

Today is the greatest

Day I've ever known

Can't wait for tomorrow

I might not have that long

I'll tear my heart out

Before I get out

Pink ribbon scars

That never forget

I tried so hard

To cleanse these regrets

My angel wings

Were bruised and restrained

My belly stings

Today is

Today is

Today is

The greatest day

I want to turn you on

I want to turn you on

I want to turn you on

I want to turn you

Today is the greatest

Today is the greatest day

Today is the greatest day

That I have ever really known

I am one as you are three

Try to find messiah in your trinity

Your city to burn

Your city to burn

Try to look for something

In your city to burn, you'll burn

Am I as I seem?

I'm down

Down, so down

Time is right for a guiding light

Try to turn to reasons in your bitter life

Your city to burn

Your city to burn

Try to look for something

In your city to burn, you'll burn

See you, don't you just want to

See you, I am one

See you, don't you just want to

See you

See you, don't you just want to

See you, I am one

See you, don't you just want to

See you, I am one

Additional Info:

After the song, there's a clip from a TV talk show or something:

"Now it's, uh, kind of strange, and, uh, kinda hard for me to talk about, but I thought maybe you could help- um, when we start getting physical, rather than having intercourse, he ends up just masturbating himself, and I end up feeling very alienated and unsatisfied, and it's really come between us-"


Feel it

Break your bones

Mr. Jones

Taste me

As I bleed

Taste my need

And spaceboy I've missed you

Spinning round my head

And any way you choose me

You'll break instead

Watch me

Death defy

Defile my life

I don't need

I don't care

Please

I want to go home

I want to go home

I want to go home

I want to go home

'Cause when a lover aches

That's when a lover breaks

I want to go home

I want to go home

And spaceboy they'll kill me

Before I'm dead and gone

And any way you choose me

It won't be wrong

And anyway you choose me

We won't belong

We won't belong

We won't belong

We won't belong

We won't belong

We won't belong

Bleed in your own light

Dream of your own life

I miss me

I miss everything I'll never be

And on, and on

I torch my soul to show

The world that I am pure

Deep inside my heart

No more lies

A crown of horns

An image formed deformed

The mark I've borne

A mark of scorn to you

Consume my love, devour my hate

Only powers my escape

The moon is out, the stars invite

I think I'll leave tonight

So soon I'll find myself alone

To relax and fade away

Do you know what's coming down

Do you know I couldn't stay free?

I shall be free

I shall be free

I shall be free

I shall be free

I shall be free free

Free of those voices inside me

I shall be free

I shall be free

Freak out

And give in

Doesn't matter what you believe in

Stay cool

And be somebody's fool this year

'Cause they know

Who is righteous, What is bold

So I'm told

Who wants honey

As long as there's some money

Who wants that honey?

Hipsters unite

Come align for the big fight to rock for you

But beware

All those angels with their wings glued on

'Cause deep down

We are frightened and we're scared

If you don't stare

Who wants honey

As long as there's some money

Who wants that honey?

Let me out

Let me out

Let me out

Let me out

Tell me all of your secrets

Cannot help but believe this is true

Tell me all of your secrets

I know, I know, I know,

Should have listened when I was told

Who wants honey

As long as there is some money

Who wants that honey?

Let me out

Let me out

Let me out

Additional Info: From 5:27-30, "listen for the police car go by" (Billy Corgan on Pisces Iscariot liner notes). "I met this girl in Dallas when we were on tour with the chili peppa's and that was where I got the idea for the name for the song because when she said her name I thought wow, what a great title for a song. 2 1/4 years later I run into this same girl at a party and I say did you hear that song we recorded using your name, Starla? And she said, no my name is Darla but hey Starla, Darla whatever it doesn't matter, so there you go. Never trust a girl who ends up with well I can't say." (Billy Corgan on Pisces Iscariot liner notes).

I'm in here

Please take me home

Starla dear, I'm all alone

When you can't decide what's on your mind, it's clear

I'm near

Starla dear

To disappear takes some more time

Starla dear, you're on my mind

Soon, soon I'll be leaving

Soon, soon I'll be leaving

I hear all you're saying

I hear all you're failing

I'm in here

Please take me home

Starla dear, I'm all alone

When you can't decide what's on your mind, it's clear

Starla dear

Serve yourself

No one else can do for you like you

No one else fails like me

In my eyes I burn alive

Fly like a bird

No more words just you and I

Disarm you with a smile

And cut you like you want me to

Cut that little child

Inside of me and such a part of you

Ooh, the years burn

I used to be a little boy

So old in my shoes

And what I choose is my choice

What's a boy supposed to do?

The killer in me is the killer in you

My love

I send this smile over to you

Disarm you with a smile

And leave you like they left me here

To wither in denial

The bitterness of one who's left alone

Ooh, the years burn

Ooh, the years burn, burn, burn

I used to be a little boy

So old in my shoes

And what I choose is my voice

What's a boy supposed to do?

The killer in me is the killer in you

My love

I send this smile over to you

The killer in me is the killer in you

Send this smile over to you

No matter where you are

I can still hear you when you drown

You've traveled very far

Just to see you I'll come around

When I'm down

All of those yesterdays

Coming around

No matter where you are

I can still hear you when you dream (on some versions, "scream")

You traveled very far

You traveled far, like a star

And you are

All of those yesterdays

Coming around

Is it something someone said?

Was it something someone said?

Yesterday the sky was you

And I still feel the same

Nothing left for me to do

And I still feel the same

I wish, I wish I could fly

I wish, I wish I could lie

I will, I will try

I will, I will

I hear your winter

I hear you rain

I've failed your summer ways

And I feel no pain

I hear what you want

And I feel that way

I hear what you want

And I feel that way

I hear you fade away

And I hear you crawl

I gave my life away

And I feel no pain

And I feel no pain

And I feel no pain

And I feel your pain

And she was my lover so sweet

And she was my angel

And what I've recovered of me

I put into a box underneath my bed

When you lie in your bed

And you lie to yourself

When you lie in your bed

And you lie to yourself

Lie

Lie

Bang bang you're dead hole in your head

Bang bang you're dead hole in your head

Bang bang you're dead hole in your head

Bang bang you're dead hole in your head

I hear what you want

And I feel that way

I hear what you want

And I feel that way

Fool enough to almost be it

Cool enough to not quite see it

Doomed

Pick your pockets full of sorrow

And run away with me tomorrow

June

We'll try and ease the pain

But somehow we'll feel the same

Well, no one knows

Where our secrets go

I send a heart to all my dearies

When your life is so, so dreary

Dream

I'm rumored to the straight and narrow

While the harlots of my perils

Scream

And I fail

But when I can, I will

Try to understand

That when I can, I will

Mother weep the years I'm missing

All our time can't be given

Back

Shut my mouth and strike the demons

That cursed you and your reasons

Out of hand and out of season

Out of love and out of feeling

So bad

When I can, I will

Words defy the plans

When I can, I will

Fool enough to almost be it

And cool enough to not quite see it

And old enough to always feel this

Always old, I'll always feel this

No more promise no more sorrow

No longer will I follow

Can anybody hear me

I just want to be me

When I can, I will

Try to understand

That when I can, I will

I spin off and lose my head

Throwing stray a spark instead

Gather strength down in my heel

And dig it in the world I peel

Way down deep within my heart

Lies a soul that's torn apart

Tell me, tell me what your after

I just want to get there faster

I don't live - I inhale

I don't give - I unveil

Don't want to live in your misery

I don't live - I inhale

Sprinkle all my kisses on your head

Stars full of wishes fill our beds

She said, "I'm dead"

All this pain smothers me

Like a bomb that you can't see

Tell me, tell me what your after

I just want to get there faster

I don't live - I inhale

I don't give - I unveil

I don't live - I inhale

I don't live

Will come to you

If your heart is in your dream

No request is too extreme

When you wish upon a star

As dreamers do

Fate is kind

She brings to those to love

The sweet fulfillment of

Their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue

Fate steps in and sees you through

When you wish upon a star

Your dreams come true

My mama said

That your life is a gift

And my mama said

There's much weight you will lift

And my mama said

Leave those bad boys alone

And my mama said

Be home before the dawn

And my mama said

You can be rich or poor

But my mama said

You can be big or small

But I'm always on the run

My mama said

That it's good to be truthful

But my mama said

Don't take more than a mouthful

And my mama said

That it's good to be natural

And my mama said

That it's good to be factual

But I'm always on the run

My mama said

Baby don't ride that crazy horse

And my mama said

You must push with much force

And my mama said

Go get all that your after

And my mama said

That love's all that matters

But I'm always on the run

I was born long ago

I am the chosen I'm the one

I have come to save the day

And I won't leave until I'm done

So that's why you've got to try

You got to breath and have some fun

Though I'm not paid I play this game

And I won't stop until I'm done

But what I really want to know is

Are you gonna go my way?

And I got to got to know

I don't know why we always cry

This we must leave and get undone

We must engage and rearrange

And turn this planet back to one

So tell me why we got to die

And kill each other one by one

We've got to love and rub-a-dub

We've got to dance and be in love

But what I really want to know is

Are you gonna go my way?

And I got to got to know

Are you gonna go my way?

'Cause baby I got to know

Yeah
